Adjusted Control Sticks
Continueing with the electrical system, I want to get the sticks installed permanantly, but first I needed to take care of a couple of issues. First of all, the bushings on each side were a little long so I ground them down a little bit. Now there's no forward/backward motion on the bushing which is a good thing. Next I measured the sticks. The passenger stick is quite a bit shorter than the pilot's side, which is directly contrary to my obsession of having things symmetrical. I did not realize the difference before and I'm glad that I checked. I put the seats in the airplane and I think the pilot's side stick is a little long for my liking. I think I'm going to cut it down to the passenger's side length. That should give me a good starting point. Next step after cutting the sticks will be wiring the grips.
